CHINA BLUE by Madalyn Morgan

I am excited to share that the third novel in the Dudley Sisters Saga, China Blue, was published on Amazon – Kindle and Paperback – this month. I say saga because the original ‘quartet’ of novels has become, five.


China Blue
Claire Dudley's secret wartime love.

CHINA BLUE is the third book in The Dudley Sisters Saga

At the beginning of World War II Claire Dudley joins the WAAF.  She excels in languages and is recruited by the Special Operations Executive to work in Occupied France. 

Against SOE rules Claire falls in love.  The affair has to be kept secret.  Even after her lover falls into the hands of the Gestapo, Claire cannot tell anyone they are more than comrades. 

As the war reaches its climax, Claire fears she will never again see the man she loves.



Foxden Acres (2013), Bess Dudley’s story, is set on the land and is about strength and loyalty. Applause (2014) is Margot Dudley’s, story and is about her climb to fame in the theatres and clubs of London’s West End. China Blue (2015) is about Claire Dudley’s secret work and love while working undercover with the Special Operations Executive and the French Resistance in German occupied France. Book 4 will be Ena’s story. It is called, The 9:45 To Bletchley, and is set in and around Bletchley Park. Book five, The Foxden Hotel, which is already keeping me awake at night, will take place ten years after Foxden Acres and brings Bess’s sisters and many of the characters from the four books together. At the opening of the hotel, a fascist group gatecrash. One of the sisters recognises one of the men from London during the war. The group are thrown out of the hotel and chased off the property with disastrous consequences.

China Blue is Claire Dudley's story.  The third novel in the Dudley Sisters Quartet begins with Claire in the WAAF.  She is recruited by the Special Operations Executive to work undercover with Canadian CRAF Captain, Alain Mitchell.  While living with the Belland family and working with the French Resistance, Claire falls in love. China Blue is a powerful love story that is packed with loyal friendships, honour, danger and sabotage.

This is the first draft of China Blue's book cover, which will go to professional designer, Cathy at Avalon Graphics, nearer the time of publication.

But for now:

The blue of the sky will come down the page as far as my name.
The dots below the short description is Morse code - 
and I may add 'Code name' above the title. 

WORK IN PROGRESS.
